I am Mary Ann Stoltzfus, a wife to Ben, and nine people call me, Mom. I have two amazing grandsons and a granddaughter on the way. Also, a little grandson in heaven. I started the doula journey in 2009, after asking our Heavenly Father how I could be a voice and encouragement to young mommas. He led me to an organization that trains childbirth professionals and doulas. Since then, I have attended over 100 births and have started building a team of women that carry my heart and vision for families. I truly believe that when families are healthy and strong, our communities become strong. God has designed family to represent and bring pleasure to Him. My encouragement to young parents is to take time to invest in themselves and create a family vision that can leave a legacy for generations.
